UKIP MEP’s continue to humiliate Britain in the European Parliament

UKIP MEP Godfrey Bloom has added his name to the prestigious list of UKIP MEP’s who have managed to humiliate the UK in the European Parliament by acting in a totally unacceptable way.  Mr Bloom shouted “Ein Volk, ein Reich, ein Fuehrer” at Martin Schulz (the leader of the Socialist grouping in the European Parliament).  He then held up proceedings on a couple of occasions by refusing to leave the chamber (when asked).

Mr Bloom joins his party leader Nigel Farage in letting the UK down.  Mr Farage notoriously told President of the European Council Herman van Rompuy he had “the charisma of a damp rag” in an outburst in the European Parliament.  These incidents are hugely unusual within the European Parliament, but are increasingly becoming normal for UKIP members.

These men continue to embarrass the UK by breaking Parliamentary rules around treating members with “respect”.  Voting UKIP will not bring the UK any closer to leaving Europe, but it will move the UK away from holding influence in Brussels.  They do nothing but isolate us further.

    Farage and Bloom speak the truth. If more MEPs exposed the workings of the EU then perhaps we wouldn’t be dictated to by a non-democratic unaccountable entity.

    This gives them votes, doesn’t it? Now everyone knows who Bloom is, a real patriot!! 😉
    I think he’s just annoyed that MEPs have the right to speak their mother tongue in Parliament and wasn’t even listening to the interpreter…

    I had always sympathy with the UKIP and Nigel Farage. It is also fine to speak the rude words about Van Rompuy, the whispered jokes of the Brussels scene or use insults in the heat of the debate. You take the personal risk of a kind of assasination stunt, you apologize and take the sanctions. Simple matter of courtesy. You don’t refuse to apologize. You don’t resist an order of the chair. You don’t add fuel to the fire.

    Mind the story book here, first Bloom shouted “ein Volk, ein Reich, ein Führer” while Schulz criticised the German and French government and ended his speech, when the chair intervened for an apology, Bloom didn’t but called Schulz in the chamber a fascist. Parliament President Buzek said “We expected something different…” Then in the break “Mr Bloom told the BBC he stood by his words, describing the leader of the socialist group in the parliament, as “a national socialist”.”

    Bloom was given a second chance at noon and failed miserably. Farage lost his remaining credibility for defending unacceptable behaviour using an inflammatory me-too strategy. Then they shouted at the chair. Unacceptable.
